On Sunday, December 9th, Manginah volunteered at the Jewish Family and Children Services (JFCS) in Waltham. We sang Modeh Ani, V'eich Shelo, Ani Chavatzelet HaSharon, Mashehu Chadash, and Chelek Mimcha (all of which are featured on our new CD!) for the elderly and volunteers coming in for a special Chanukkah celebration! This was such a fun performance for us - we've noticed that our volunteer performances are always sweet and gratifying. People really appreciate free entertainment! We especially loved talking to all of them afterward about our music and our ambitions for the future!
"You really did help to create a fun atmosphere and make our guests feel special. Thank you!" --Sue Spielman, Coordinator of The Friendly Visitor Program
Picture to come!
This week, Manginah was given the incredible opportunity to perform at President Fred Lawrence's house at the Board of Trustees dinner. It was an honor to be invited to sing at this important event along with our fellow acappella-ers Starving Artists. We brought our best, singing one of our favorites, Chelek Mimcha, and elicited many nods of approval and shared smiles from our esteemed audience. The highlight for many of us (besides the free pizza!) was the loud "Wow." we got from one of the trustees as we ended the song. This is a proud moment for Manginah, past and present!
